Okay, so this is going to be more of a musing rather than an inspiration this week. I have been exploring the concept of dark vs. light energy for awhile now. As most of you know who have had readings with me, I tend to stay on the positive, light, optimistic side of things. People appreciate it, but sometimes people want me to be harsher. "Why don't you tell me like it is? I feel like you are sugar coating it or not telling me how bad it is really going to get." My reason for using this method is a topic for another blog, but it is a combination of guidance from your guides I work with, my personality and what is in both our best interests in a reading that lead me to read this way.
Anyway, I know that the dichotomy we have on this planet requires and opposite to exist for everything. But why is this true? (I don't have the answer by the way... this is my search.) Is the dark side really "bad" or is it just bad because we make it so in our minds? Is this something we put in front of ourselves to appreciate the "good"?
I think that we must experience the spectrum of things in order to have emotions about them. Which is what I believe is our primary purpose in these human bodies... to experience emotion and the spiritual lessons they provide.
I just get discouraged when I encounter really "dark" forces. Ones that exist through the weakening of others. Ones that feed off of energy rather than create energy to give. I find myself getting slapped in the face a bit. Me skipping along on my "light" path and boom, fell into a dark hole. Oh man! I tried to keep myself high enough on the path to avoid these holes. Why didn't I avoid them? I get it from a mental level, the reason behind these experiences. I am just wondering, how bad does it get? I believe it is only as bad as your mind will let it get. But I also get shaken around in that belief at times too.
Taking is just a bit further on this topic... what about the devil, demons, etc.? Are these things real? I know they are very real on many levels, but what level do you think? And why and where do these things exist? Are they existing to balance out things? Are they on another dimension wondering why angels, and God, etc. exist?
Finally, I am wondering what we are meant to learn from these encounters. We can't avoid them, I have already tried that and so has everyone I read for. So the next best thing to do is turn and face it and learn what we can for that encounter. It doesn't mean we dwell there, it just means we don't fear it, run from it, or deny it's existence. Can anyone really dwell only in the light, bright and positive? I know we all try, but maybe by the mere act of trying, we bring more of it in.
